    "We moved to Tarver from another local school last year at the second semester. Moving my child to Tarver was the best decision. The principal is amazing, he is always at every school function. The teachers are wonderful, caring and very organized. There is a sense of pride at Tarver that you don't find at many schools. People want to be at this school. We love it here."

    "Tarver is an excellent school! We have loved every teacher we've had at this school. The changes that the principal has made in the last few years have made a wonderful difference. I can't imagine my kids attending anywhere else. Go Tigers!"

    "My daughter attend Tarver last year for full day Kindergarten. I did have HUGE concerns with the full day kindergarten teacher going into the school year. I had already heard several discouraging items with this teacher. I feel that my daughter went into kindergarten knowing more than when she came out. She was not challenged, not on a reading schedule, or learned word groupings, or phonics. Her full day assistant made up for her weaknesses but her hands were tied as well. My daughter will not be returning to Tarver and will be repeating kindergarten at a different school. I am friends with other students parents and we all had the same issue. If you try to talk to the Principal it goes in one ear and out the other. If you go there, I would recommend that you pick the FREE half day kindergarten, not worth paying $300 for nothing."

    "There's much to be said about a school where the community scores are so disparate. Personally, I have experienced/seen the worst of the public education system at Tarver - mutual lack of accountability from the district, administrators and teachers; principals who have an aversion to handling "difficult" situations; teachers who demoralize students who need additional help and students who have accepted mediocrity. This behavior stems from a mandate that is handed from the top down - there are only a handful of schools in Adams 12 that I would even consider being relatively at par with the type of education that should be expected for our children. I have given Tarver, its principal(s) and teachers five years and three students to prove to me that I can entrust them with the education of my children and they have all failed. I am enrolling my children in private school and moving as far as I can away from Adams 12. I would advise you to do the same."

    "This is a great school. The new principal this year is really improving things. All the teachers are wonderful. I never have to worry about who my child will get because they work together well to get the best curriculum possible to the kids. The parents are becoming more and more involved which is excellent. This is one of the better schools in the district."
